BENGALURU: Shivajinagar MLA R. Roshan Baig appeared before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Friday for questioning in connection with the multi-crore I Monetary Advisory (IMA) investment scam.
The SIT had summoned the legislator to question his alleged involvement in the IMA scam running into over 4,000 crore after IMA Group Managing Director Mohammed Mansoor Khan had accused him of taking Rs 400 crore and not returning the money.
Mr Baig was directed to appear before the SIT on Friday after he failed to turn up at the SIT office twice. He was detained at the Kempegowda International Airport on Monday night when he was trying to board a private chartered aircraft to Mumbai.
The SIT had detained him fearing that he may abscond hours after Khan had released a video claiming to return to India within 24 hours.
“Roshan Baig appeared before the SIT and submitted relevant records for perusal. SIT will go through the records and if further questioning is required he will be called again," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) and SIT chief Dr B.R. Ravikanthe Gowda said.
